How do you guys think, what are the chances of somewhat reboot/ reunion season?

By reboot I mean somewhat of a revival. I mean so many cult shows were recently or are about to be brought back to life for a rehash, like Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls and now Community… I’m sure there were a few others I forget.
Does this show have enough cult following to warrant something like that? I remember when it just came out it was big, but I guess they annoyed a lot of people with constant misdirects and not resolving the first case in one season. That was totally AMCs fault with their shorter seasons… I was annoyed with that too and also it had way too slow of a pace in season 1 to end like that lol. Season 3 was very dynamic pace wise, I’m glad I came back to it all these years later and finally caught on it.

I noticed these types of projects start coming to fruition when the creative team, including main leads haven’t had much going on in a bit, which seems to be the case here. I mean they both had some shows/ movies since then but not recently.

So fingers crossed?! no?

Unpopular opinion Forbrydelsen series 3 sucked and so did the series finale

Let's start by saying that to me at least, forbrydelsen series 3 was a big disappointment. There was nothing new or exciting about it, it was a recycled version of seasons 1 & 2. The politics arc was VERY boring and yawning, like I've seen that twice already can we move on to something else. Lund's character was extra jerk-ish this season, she's genuinely a bad person, not caring about her son (what else is new), being mean to his girlfriend, sleeping with a married man, and grasping at straws because she had a "hunch" it's starting to get old and it made me lose interest but apparently I'm supposed to "root" for her and Borch cuz they're "cute", like no fuck you, shes a home wrecker. The whole premise of this season is a kidnapping, a perp that turned out to be a grieving dad and the assistant being a serial killer which was the most interesting part yet was left unexplored, the lore would've been interesting like with Vagn in series 1 but no they focus on the boring-ass politics, what do I care if the prime minister is a simp whos shagging some hoe?? The finale was very boring, no suspense whatsoever, like wow she blew his brains out cuz she knows he's a serial killer and Borch tries to get her out of it but its okay guys, its cute right? they kiss and we could all go "awww" well fuck no, I was just bored I kept fast-forwarding just to finish the show. Overall, it was a decent watch, series 1 was the best, and I preferred series 2 over 3 which felt like a lazy rewrite, nothing new, politics+a case on the side+rich people i do not care about. Wb guys what did you think?

Wait so Mathias Borch cheats on his wife with Lund??

In episode 6, series 3, Lund sleeps with Borch, which is very shitty of her to do cuz he's married and very shitty of him cuz he's cheating on his wife so wtf? I will never ever deem adultery acceptable or cheer for the "couple" cuz they're "cute" No they're not, they're doing something very wrong. I get that shes this badass cool invincible detective who shows no emotion and is distant but this is where I draw the line, idc if they were an item before, things are different he's married and has two kids now. How shitty of both of them.

Fobry III the mom, Maja, is extremely annoying

First of all, I hate her, she's so annoying. She ran off with this other dude, we don't even know if it was an affair or whatever, so red flag. Obviously, her kids don't like her now and don't wanna be around her because she and her bf are home wreckers, and then she says "I'm their mom" when they want nothing to do with her, well lady should've thought of that before you walked out on them. And third of all, she is extremely annoying, yes ik i said that before but I need to emphasize it. She's constantly a nuisance, trying to butt in the investigation, yelling at the police. I get that she wants to find her kid but bitch they're doing the best they can. And when she's like 'I'm gonna go look for her here" "I'm gonna do this there" as if the police hadn't thought of that before. Like bitch relax, you're not gonna be the one to crack the case or make a groundbreaking discovery, let the goddamn people do their job. I'm sorry but she's shitty and not a good person or mom so it's hard for me to feel any sympathy for her. And last but not least, she was literally the one staying with Carl and Emilie the night she was taken, she was under her supervision yet blames her ex-husband for the abduction like bitch???? You were the one watching them that night? It's your fault, you were supposed to keep them safe.

Is it just me or does Forbrydelsen III feel a little stupid??

Thought it was gonna get good but I'm at episode 6 and they're debating whether or not Emilie is dead and spoiler alert she's not, I felt like that was a cheap shot, I feel like that's the good plot element and they ruined it just to have a "running into the sunset happily ever after" ending? like okay didn't know I was watching a kids' movie sorry. Not the mention the politics arc that's getting so repetitive and boring. Anyway I spoiled myself a bit but does the rest of the season get good?? Like I don't need a spoiler but is it worth watching the rest?

Holder and lindon

Anyone else think the killing sheet have ended with holder and London kissing. They were so close to having a beautiful moment the hug was great but a final kiss would have been amazing

One thing I didn't care for in Forbrydelsen

So I'm starting series 3 and I'm wondering why there is a political arc in all three seasons. Like it's getting repetitive at this point, series 1 with the election shit for mayor, then series 2 with the ministers and whatnot, and now series 3 also with the prime minister and an election in sight. I get that technically everything revolves around politics but they could've had a murder case without shifting to politics again, making the case the sole focus and it'd be entertaining.

Just finished Forbrydelsen series 1 and I have some thoughts

Ive watched the killing US version before this so I got the chance to make some comparisons regarding the Rosie/Nanna case. First, I feel like I connected with Rosie more, like we’ve seen more of her, the last episode showing her with her family, looking at them for the last time before she ran away. Nanna, we don’t really see much of her, except on the video recorder or surveillance cameras so I don’t even know what she’s like to have more empathy for the character. Second, the build up in the danish series is better, I like how the politics arc was done, I like the logic of things, the suspects, the pursuit, Lund’s character… I felt sad about Meyer’s death but he was played a huge role in finding Vagn and knowing he’s the perpetrator. For the US series, I didn’t like that it was too over dramatic sometimes like Rickmann being shot and becoming paralyzed and the inclusion of the Indian casino owner and all that. It was getting too much at some point and diverging from the murder case. What I liked though is how tight Linden and Holder are, I like that Holder lives and forms this bond with his partner and they’re close friends and jack likes him. And last but not least, I did not care for Forbrydeslen’s last episode in series one, okay the killer is revealed, we know what he did but nothing is explained about the night of the murder, how did Vagn know about the flat? What did he do to Nanna there and in the basement? How did he get her from the flat to the basement to the woods without anyone seeing him? Also wasn’t Theis doing renovations there? How would he have not known that his daughter was kept prisoner in the basement, that’s kinda weird and confusing. The US version did a much better job imo cuz we know all about Rosie’s whereabouts, she went from recital to home then took the ferry, watched the city, accidentally eavesdropped then was caught by the killer. Granted, it may not be the best reveal but at least it didn’t leave me with as much any questions as the Original did, it took the hype away from solving the case. Anyway it was good overall, just a question of personal preference, I’m about to embark on series 2 so hope it’s a good watch.

((spoiler)) Linden and Holder deserve to get caught

I'm at the end of S4E4 and I just need to vent:

They're so shit at covering up what happened with Skinner, you'd think being homicide detectives they'd have a clue how to cover up their tracks, no wonder they took two whole seasons to find Rosie's killer.

I guess the story needs that to go somewhere but COME ON.

Is The Killing US version different from Forbrydelsen?

I've watched The Killing US version and now I'm watching Forbrydelsen. I've read in the subreddit that the ending is different and so is the killer, can you please confirm if that's true or not without spoilers? I just don't want to waste my time rewatching all over again just for it to be similar in the end. Thank you.

I officially finished the show, idk how to feel abt it esp the Rosie Larsen case (Major spoilers!)

Okay so Rosie Larsen's murder, the final reveal was cool I guess, I like that a bunch of people were involved in it, kinda meh about the killer being Jamie but I like that Terry was involved too. The buildup was good at times and bad at others. It started off pretty good, yk obvious suspects, her ex-boyfriend, his junkie friend, the teacher, the councilman, great and they were eliminated as suspects. Season 2 though, that's where I feel like it kinda dragged on. At a certain point it was just filler, some details and episodes were unnecessary and didn't add anything to the overall progress of the story. I only really enjoyed the final episodes in season 2 leading up to the big reveal of the killer. Some elements were overly complicated, Janek being involved and then Alexi or whatever, I feel like this arc dragged on for a while and it was pretty unnecessary, like these suspects were kinda useless. And then Michael Ames and the casino lady and the mayor and the guy working for Janek who broke into the construction site. At a certain point, it was getting tricky to keep up, you'd think we'd have some kind of extraordinary reveal by the end. Also, the reveal that Stan was not her real father doesn't change anything for us, he's still a grieving dad, just doesn't add much to the big picture. Overall, it was good but I feel like this could've easily been wrapped up in one season just like season 3 and 4 did and we could've moved on to something else.

The Rosie Larsen case

I'm on episode 6 of season 2 and I already think it's been dragging on for waaaaaaaay too long, like ok I get wanting to create some suspense and a slow burn but it's getting BORING. Every time they introduce someone and then they're "Oh oops, not the killer" like okay but you're dragging this too long, they should've wrapped it up in season 1 or at the beginning of season 2 cuz at this point it's just getting monotonous. Just have a new case in season 2 like the other seasons, that way we could've had four cases, something more interesting than this. Also the mom is such a bitch, first of all, wtf kinda name is "Mitch" for a woman, and second of all, what a bitchy and cowardly move to leave your grieving husband and kids because "every piece of the house hurts you" as if it doesn't hurt them too. Like okay, I get that you're grieving but so is your family and they need you more than ever, but instead she abandoned them under the excuse of "tHeY dOnT nEeD mE" and dumped them on her sister who btw was a mom to them more than Mitch ever could, like how does leaving and going to some motel and cheating on your husband help?? Also, don't even get me started on this arc where she's chasing and watching this teenage girl in the motel, trying to bond with her, it's SO cringe like what? I'm supposed to feel sorry for her cuz she's trying to recreate what she had with her dead daughter. She didn't even know her and Rosie didn't like her according to Alexi. Idk how this will boil down so no spoilers please, like I said, I'm still at the beginning of season 2 but yeah, this is getting pretty repetitive and boring.

Just finished season 3 and 4 and I have some questions and remarks

Okay so I’m gonna start by saying that it’s def a good show, loved it, love it’s colder more chill tone yk like it’s not too colorful and out there in your face and I like that, I think season 3 was very good, loved the whole Pied Piper arc and Ray’s time leading up to his execution it’s very heart wrenching and suspenseful to watch, the final reveal is also crazy. I felt bad for the teen working girls especially the ones we got to know like Bullet, Kallie, Angie… I did not really care for Lyric, esp after she was kinda cruel to Bullet, like sure Bullet got ahead of herself, thought they had a thing going on after like one kiss and the fact that Lyric never explicitly said she might be interested in her but Bullet protected her, treated her better than that prick Twitch could ever, he was constantly abusive, just using her and taking her money, whereas Bullet actually felt something genuine for her and wanted to treat her right and it kinda saddened me how they showed Lyric moving on, looking at the appartement all happy, totally forgetting abt Bullet who just got killed, like yeah sure she stops for a sec and has this solemn expression on her face and she’s there at her funeral but yk it’s unfortunate :( also there is this thing I been wondering about regarding bodies of girls that were found. So in season 3, Linden finds the bodies through Adrian’s drawing and there is a total of 17 bodies and then the count is 21 bodies after Angie and Bullet and two more girls are found I think. Then in season 4, when they find Skinner’s body they find more girls’ bodies along with his, so were those also killed by him? Ik that Kallie was among the victims, it’s just a bit scattered you know? How he got rid of some in one lake and then others in the lake near his cabin but yeah. I also wonder about Trisha Seward like did Skinner kill her too? Probably, but he never explicitly confirms it when Linden says « you wanted to kill Adrian, Trisha was just in the way » he just responds that he never wanted to kill Adrian cuz he didn’t even remember him. So that’s all the things I had to say about what I watched so far.

Danish Version -Not Dubbed- Where to Watch?

Anyone know where I can find an un-dubbed Danish Version of The Killing? I hate watching shows Dubbed over in English. It's just weird to listen to and you can tell it's just not natural. I rather have English subtitles. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks!

Watching for the second time.

I love this show. I especially love Linden and Holder and it’s funny because initially I couldn’t stand them. I actually thought I might not get thru the series because they both annoyed me for different reasons and it goes to show the exceptional writing on the show because I ended up loving them both and wishing I could watch them solve crimes forever. If you start the series and find them irritating, annoying, please keep watching because they show more of their full character’s personality and what all they been through to make them like they are.

Why is the first case split into two seasons in The killing ?

I am watching season 1 of The Killing and read the wiki page and came to know that the case is not solved in Season 1 and it is solved only in Season 2. Is the reveal worth the wait ? Why does it take 26 episodes to solve a murder case ?

How would you rank the seasons of The Killing?

I’m wondering how good seasons 2-4 are, I started watching for Joel Kinnamen after he impressed me in Altered Carbon.

But I’ve spent all of season 1 waiting for them to move on from Bennet Ahmed as a suspect because there was literally zero tension for me because there was no way from US society standpoint that a show is going to have the only major Black character (WITH dreadlocks, PLUS is a Muslim) end up being the murderer🙄

Are the following seasons less clumsy and obvious this way?

my theory for post-finale Holder and Linden

I like to think that Linden and Holder became PI's as a duo in Seattle and helped out the police every now and then with murder cases.

Question about Holder in finale

I understand that part of the Richmond-Reddick deal was that Linden would leave the police force. Was Holder also forced off the police force? In the time jump, we see that he has a new job at the NA facility. Did he decide to leave the force? Or he was also forced out by Richmond/Reddick because of helping Linden cover up the murder?

Also what happened with Caroline and Holder? Why didn't they work out? Was it because she found out about Holder's part in helping? Was it because he was forced off the police force and started using again? I wish there was more of a closure at the end, I thought they were gonna make it.
